Some days, I get discouraged

I just got back to the farm after being called away for a couple of weeks. It was weird being away for so long. I didn't need to get up and feed the critters. I didn't spend any time logging egg counts, or making notes on seed starts. I didn't water anything, prune anything, or mulch anything. I had so much free time, I didn't know what to do with myself.

It was great!

For about two days.

Then, I just missed the craziness of our homestead.

I've been back for a couple of days now, and I realize there's one thing I didn't miss: my own too high expectations. I have so many goals for our little homestead - too many to reasonably make happen - and then I get angry with myself when I can't meet them.

So if you're me, or if you're a homesteader, or a stay-at-home mom, or a writer, or a farmer, or a parent, or just someone who gets discouraged when you can't get it all done, I made this video for you.


  1. Thank you for this, Love. Heaven knows I battle with my own version of this...I feel like I'm failing at the few things I'm already doing, no way can I imagine adding in more to fail at! And I don't have MS to contend with. You really are an amazing human, and I'm so grateful to know you. Xoxo.
